Enrique Ledesma Mexican silver Bracelet ~ Taxco modernist cuff with oxidation

By in archived |

Vintage Enrique Ledesma sterling silver cuff bracelet, this mid-century piece features an eye-catching abstract applque riveted on a highly oxidized surface that accentuates its fluid lines in the best possible way. Quite often jewelry from this specific Ledesma line have problems with their oxidation but here it is preserved in almost mint condition (any unevenness you see in the photos is due to the way the macro lens captures details that are not even detectable to the naked eye). Slick and timeless…   Size/Weight: inner circumference of just above 7″ (including the 1″ gap); width between 1  9/16″ at center front and 5/8″ at either end; 43.4 grams, Hallmarks / Date: fully and appropriately signed as shown; 1950s-60s Condition: excellent vintage – one of the best examples in Ledesma’s “niello” line   SOLD – Thank...
